Jaromir Jagr, a Mop, and Uncle Jesse

Jaromir Jagr just got traded to the Florida Panthers and less than 8 hours later there’s already been a sighting of his jersey at a game. Like most of you, I had to look up to see where in the standings the Florida Panthers were. I assume it was near the bottom and I wasn’t too far off. They are in 9th place fighting for the last playoff spot. File this trade under “who cares...

Nate Dogg And Warren G Had To Regulate

REGULATORS!!! MOUNT UP! Sports fans custom jerseys game the last few months has been hotter than some brothas shootin dice on 21 and Lewis. None more blazing than this St Louis Blues fan who decided to give some dap to the one and only Nate Dogg. Sure he spelled it Nate Dawgg instead of Nate Dogg, but I’d like to think that he was just adding some swagger to his already drippin...

Blue Chips 2.0: recasting the movie using todays NBA players

It is difficult to believe, but it has been almost 20 years since the premier of one of the most memorable sports movies of the 90s, Blue Chips. Being a huge college basketball fan in 1994, there was no movie I wanted to see more. Just watch the trailer! Shaq, Penny, Matt Nover, and every other college basketball star from 1993 was in it. In my sports-crazed, adolescent brain, this...

Non-glamorous NBA players who wore number 35 with pride

Number 35. Kevin Durant is arguably the best player in the NBA wearing this number on his back. Night after night he defies logic and crushes on someone or drains that dagger three ball that has Kevin Harlan shouting “Right between the eyes!” Durant even rocks the killer instinct Lebron James thinks Chris Bosh and Shane Battier must have (why else would he pass to them in the...

What if you fought NBA players in Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out?

007-373-5963. For some of you I don’t even need to say what that number represents. Like that sweet tribal tattoo you got in college, it never leaves you. For everyone else it’s the cheat code to jump straight to fighting Tyson in Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out. That series of numbers along with “up up down down left right left right B A B A select start” (for two players) are permanently bur...

Starter Jackets were the original swag

Starter recently announced the re-launch of the satin jacket. Hold the freaking phone. My mind instantly wandered back to my childhood days in the mean streets of suburbia Cleveland to the time when Starter jackets ruled the schoolyard and playgrounds everywhere. Growing up you may have watched different TV shows or had different favorite movies than me and my friends, but one thing...

Nothing but Rex Chapman Commercials

I’m feeling a bit frisky. When I feel a bit frisky it means that I’ve been thinking about late 80’s NBA players. Today I’ve been thinking specifically about my favorite white dunker, Rex Chapman. Here’s a few commercials from the last 80’s/early 90’s that Chapman did that should put a smile on your face. The first thing I noticed in this Converse commercial is the...

NBA Trivia for All-Star Weekend

NBA All-Star weekend is here!!! That basically means that around an extra 5,000 strippers will be descending upon NYC in order to catch some of the dollar bills floating through the air as players make it rain the club. Since you probably won’t be able to be there, here is some NBA trivia to get you through. 1. This former NBA All-Star and head basketball coach on the NBA Saturday...

5 Athlete Fragrances I’d Love To See

I’ve been thinking, if McConaughey gets to parade around in Lincoln commercials, flicking glasses and waiting until the rain stops so he can drive away in is old man car, then why can’t other dudes get their endorsement on, too? What if male athletes had their own men’s fragrances? Can you imagine what the names would be? Here are five athlete fragrances I’d love to see...

Leafs Jersey Fail Makes Me Wanna Cry

Poor Toronto Maple Leafs fans. They are the Knicks fans of the North who are crying themselves to sleep on the regular due to the ineptness of their beloved hockey team. Do I blame this Leafs fan for his custom jersey fail? Yes and no. Yes because when all hope is lost just rock a Tie Domi jersey, channel his inner badassness, and your sadness will temporary go away. No because...

Terribly Awesome Football Card: Brian Bosworth

Brian Bosworth aka “The Boz” looks like the product of a gene splicing concoction that is one part Joe Dirt and two parts Ivan Drago. Like Drago, Bosworth had no qualms about pumping his body full of anything that could improve its performance. His dominant college football career was marred by his suspension from the Orange Bowl and ban from the league that Bosworth repeatedly...

Top 5 Underrated Sports Video Games

There’s nothing better than firing up the old SEGA Genesis for my favorite game of all-time. That would be NHL ’94, playing as the Pavel Bure and the Canucks, beating on the less-than Mighty Ducks. It just doesn’t get any better. I know that many have a favorite year of Madden, or NCAA Football (at least until it goes the way of NCAA March Madness, RIP), or even Tiger Woods...

Charlie Conway and Johnny Moxon Fight for The Joey Potter Cup

In the small, insular world of Capeside, Massachusetts, there was never a real emphasis on sports. Sure, Jack made some waves as one of the first openly gay high school athletes we can remember, but even then that was a backburner plot line at best. But Pacey and Dawson, two best friends/romantic rivals, never really competed athletically for the admiration of the show’s feisty...

Top 5 Best Sports Trophies

We all know that chicks dig winners. I mean we can all debate the merits of Jonathan Moxon and Charlie Conway all day, but each guy walked away a winner at the end of the day. But neither of them got the glory of raising a trophy over their heads at the end of the game. That moment, whether it’s the championship at the end of the season, the recognition of your pure domination...

Greatest NBA Slam Dunk Contest Ever: 1988 or 2000?

Yesterday NBA TV was running an NBA Slam Dunk Contest marathon, which is pretty much porn for a sports degenerate like myself. They showed the 1988 MJ vs Dominique dunk contest directly after the 2000 Vinansity dunk contest. I have no doubt that these are the best two dunk contests ever. In 1988 Michael Jordan vs Dominique Wilkins was the most epic back and forth battle in slam dunk...

NBA All-Star Weekend Two on Two Contest Podcast

How awesome would a two on two contest be at NBA All-Star Weekend? Unbelievable, I know. That’s why I wrote an article about it and is why Chicago Bulls blogger Adam Jun joined me on a podcast to talk about the intriguing storylines and teams from the contest. Just imagine a Steph Curry & Klay Thompson vs Kevin Durant & Russell Westbook matchup. LeBron & Kyrie vs...

Saved By The Bell Jerseys, Yes Please!

Few combinations in life are as good as bacon and sports, but jerseys and Saved By The Bell are a close second. That’s why when I saw that the Brooklyn Cyclones, a single A baseball team, were going to wear Saved By The Bell jerseys I was more excited than Jessie Spano after a handful of caffeine pills. Even better, the Saved By The Bell festivities aren’t just limited to...

How Not To Get Laid Custom Jersey

There is a small yet highly visible subsection of the rocking jerseys culture comprised of dudes who wear jerseys that shout to the world “I’m not getting laid.” This Horny custom jersey is a perfect example. Also included would be rocking a jersey that says Man Juice, Milf Hunter or any #69 jersey. It goes without saying that your Mom would cringe seeing her son wear this...

Super Bowl Edition of Flag It Tag It

Time for a Super Bowl edition of Flag It Tag It where G-Hunt and I dish about some things from the past week that deserve to be called out. We shot this one at 1871 Chicago, the tech incubator that we work out of, so if you are wondering why we are in the most sterile/boring room ever, it’s because it’s a freaking conference room the size of a hockey stick. The offenders that...

Terribly Awesome Basketball Card: World B. Free

To the youngsters out there, know your history. Chad Ocho Cinco’s got nothing on World B. Free, and Metta World Peace is just a cheap Xerox copy. Before those two clowns decided to adopt their new monikers, Lloyd B. Free legally changed his first name to World. The act legitimized the “All-World” nickname he had earned on the street ball courts of Brooklyn, while simultaneously...

Atlanta Hawks Logo Will Always Be Pac-Man To Me

On the latest Hoopster Nation podcast I mentioned that for the first time in my 34 years on earth I finally saw the hawk in the Atlanta Hawks logo. Up until then I’d always seen only the Pac-Man. Queue the Mallrats sailboat clip.   You might be wondering how it is that someone who watches and writes about sports all day every day never noticed the hawk in the logo? I’ve...

Seahawks Fan Reaction Just Like Hogan At Bash At The Beach

Super Bowl XLIX will go down as one of the greatest ever. On numerous occasions fans from both the Patriots and Seahawks wanted to puke because of the gut wrenching drama. Naturally any time emotional peril is involved my mind instantly goes back to Bash at the Beach and Hulk Hogan, aka one of the most unforgettable moments of my life. While last night’s Super Bowl outcome didn’t...

What does the Ultimate Warrior really say in a promo?

In the last edition of Wrestling the English Language we discussed an interview given by a man who was notorious for the surreal and outrageous, the “Macho Man” Randy Savage. While Savage may stake a claim on the Mount Rushmore of insanity, the patron saint of frenzied rhetoric is undoubtedly The Ultimate Warrior. Where Savage appeared to be on the brink of crossing the line...

7 Best Game Faces in Sports

“Your face, I like it.” That’s probably what I would say if I ever had the chance to meet Tom Brady in the flesh. But since I’m a mere mortal, and he’s a suspected deflator, it’ll likely never happen. Dude has a great game face, though. Speaking of, have you ever noticed not all game faces are created equal?
